The Ensemble Rue du Nord is a tank of musicians,
a variable geometry ensemble, adapting to improvised music projects as to interdisciplinary compositions and practices.
It was founded in 2005 during a project under the control of Urs Leimgruber, a musicna from Lucern. It has performed
many concerts in Switzerland and in Balkans with the 'swiss-balkan creative music', in collaboration with the dancer
Emma Ribing and the company CH.AU.
The "swiss-balkan creative music" brings together the musicians of the Ensemble Rue du Nord and guests from the Ex-Yugoslavia.
Many concerts and wokshops were given in Sarajevo, Belgrade, Sofia, Skopje and Prishtina of between 2007 and 2008, thus
allowing meetings and collaborations between Swiss and Balkans musicians. The Biel concert is part of aswiis tour in
february 2009, bringing together Swiss musicians and four guests representative of the young scene of the improvised
and experimental musics of Balkans.
